I thought Benneteau would collapse in the fifth set with all the wasted chances in his mind and because Baghdatis is a proven 5set warrior who would probably raise his level as he is always tough in these situations. But congrats to Benneteau for keeping his level and winning this encounter to hand Baghdatis his first loss in a five setter.

Thanks for winning me money. Knowing as little as I do about tennis, I'm surprised I backed him at 3-1. Oh well, itmight be enough money to pay for bad gambler's lunch...

Baghdatis in clay = Davydenko in grassWith the slight difference that the TV channels won't show Davydenko on grass, while we have to watch every match of Baghdatis on clay.

Thank you, Julien, for not collapsing in the 5th set after this big choke job in the 4th set, that was, all in all, a very well-deserved win!

Great win for Julien, his volley's and drop shots were great and the way he moved too. Well done to him! :)

Kinda shocked for Baggy though but that's the way it goes, always seed casualties :)

Please, can anyone post the video of the point in which both Baggy and Juliena fall? One of the bests points of the tournament so far.

Thanks!
